Seguin’s pole vault­ing rec­og­nized

The Glengarry News - - Sports In The Glens -

The Univer­sity of Guelph hon­oured South Glen­garry’s Brennan Seguin as co- win­ner of the Gryphons track and field team Rookie of the Year award.

The na­tional (U-Sports) pole vault gold medal­list won the event, clear­ing 5 me­tres – the only com­peti­tor in the field to do so.

Seguin shared his rookie award with Matthew MacNeill, a 60 m hur­dler and long jumper.

A grad­u­ate of Char-Lan DHS who trained un­der lo­cal coach Rory Black­ad­der, Seguin is in just his first year as a stu­den­tath­lete at Guelph, where he is study­ing so­ci­ol­ogy.

He’s plan­ning to com­pete in a num­ber of meets out­side of the univer­sity sphere this sum­mer, in­clud­ing the Canadian Track and Field Cham­pi­onships, sched­uled for July 25-28, in Ot­tawa.
